There are lots of apps out there that allow you to play vintage arcade games on your iPhone or iPod, but this is the first we've seen that comes with an accessory to physically transform the device into an actual game. If you are a pinball wizard who needs to feel the game to really enjoy it, then this little gadget is the perfect accessory for you.

In what could become the start of a craze, New Potato Technologies has released the Pinball Magic [app]cessory to bring the look and feel of vintage pinball to your iPhone or iPod. Pinball Magic recreates a classic game cabinet to give you a portable arcade experience, complete with flipper buttons and ball-launching plunger. The LED-lit animated backbox lights up to reward your pinball wizard skills and the folding legs make this little guy easy to carry and easy to store. The Pinball Magic app is available as a free download from the iPhone App Store, and the [app]cessory retails for $39.99 at Best Buy (though it is currently backordered).
